Timelines of Dietary TU-100 Administration. All mice were fed AIN76-A for one week before starting experiments. (a) Forty-eight females and 48 males were assigned to 3 groups (groups 1–3). Mice in group 1 and group 2 were fed AIN76-A and 1.5% TU-100 for 24 weeks, respectively. Group 3 was fed 1.5% TU-100 for 12 weeks and then returned to AIN-76A for another 12 weeks. (b) Forty-five males were stratified into 5 groups (groups 1–5). Group 1 was 5 mice and other groups were 10 mice. Group 1 were fed AIN-76A for 24 weeks.  Group 2 and group 4 were fed 0.75% and 3.0% TU-100 for 12 weeks and then returned to AIN-76A for another 12 weeks, respectively. Group 3 and group 5 were fed 0.75% and 3.0% TU-100 for 24 weeks, respectively.
